Location

Waters Edge is a gated development of exclusive properties which wrap around three sides of Wansford Marina on the river Nene, which runs for 88 miles between Peterborough and Northampton.

Wansford village, half a mile north of the marina, is an attractive village with largely stone period houses and the 16th century Haycock Inn, together with two further public houses, village shop and doctor’s surgery with pharmacy.

Two miles to the south, the Estate village of Elton has a Garden Centre and Loch Fyne restaurant, among other facilities.

The Cathedral City of Peterborough provides a comprehensive range of retail and sports facilities, and mainline commuter links to London and Cambridge (from 49 minutes).

Indeed, along with its good commuter rail and road links, the area is also spoilt for choice of excellent schooling.

Aside from well-thought of state education locally The Peterborough School and the renowned private schools in the Georgian market towns of Stamford and Oundle are within a 10 mile radius, with Uppingham, Oakham and Kimbolton a little further.

Description

6 Waters Edge was constructed in 2016, when it was bought by the current owners as a weekend second home.

The detached three storey house, which is entered from the driveway at upper ground level, provides beautifully appointed and spacious accommodation throughout with solid hardwood oak flooring, well-appointed kitchen, bath and shower room fittings and an air source central heating system.

With a great flow to the accommodation, the house is designed to showcase the south facing marina views from all the principal rooms. The south facing garden has also been designed for entertaining in mind and offers private and waterside terraces, along with a covered veranda adjoining the house.

This is a splendid home and an efficient house to run, demonstrated by the closely aligned EPC rating against the building’s potential; the mooring right within the marina is an added benefit.

THE ACCOMMODATION
The front door opens at upper ground level to an oak floored entrance hallway, which passes a study and cloakroom en route, through a twin set of glazed oak doors, to a spacious and visually impressive oak floored sitting room, from which double doors access the covered veranda balcony with views over the garden and marina. The sitting room is open plan to the kitchen, which is fitted with a well-appointed and extensive suite, incorporating integrated appliances and a breakfast bar.

A staircase rises from the entrance hallway to the second floor, where the principal bedroom suite and bedroom two are located. The principal suite occupies almost the entire floor, comprising a 24 foot wide room with wide gable windows, with French doors to a Juliet balcony, offering south facing views. The bedroom links through a dressing room to an en suite.

The carpeted staircase descends to the lower ground floor, where there is a side entrance to the house from the oak floored hallway. Two generously proportioned marina facing double bedrooms have access to the waterside veranda, whilst there is also a large utility room and family bathroom.

OUTSIDE
The entrance to the Waters Edge development is through a key operated electric gate, with a private lane that leads to the marina and its properties.

This property’s driveway and single garage adjoin the house, with a pathway leading to the front door at upper ground level. The south facing garden is accessed either from within the house at lower ground level, or by walking around one side of the dwelling and past the lower ground floor secondary entrance.

The garden is designed for entertaining and for ease of maintenance. The sellers invested heavily in the landscaping, creating an extended deck, laying artificial turf as the formal lawn, whilst retained timber sleeper flower and shrub beds have automated irrigation systems and ensure contrast, colour and visual interest in the foreground, with the backdrop of the water behind. A private seating terrace to the rear of the garden store outbuilding is a real suntrap, whilst the covered veranda ensures shelter for garden entertaining even in rain, with the waterside terrace for clement conditions to sit enjoy the fabulous setting.
